status, and criminal record between heroin addicts, cannabis users and a control group. Additional goal was to explore

Personality Questionnaire EPQ. In comparison to the control group, heroin addicts and cannabis users had lower level

of education, were more frequently unemployed and with criminal record, and more often came from dysfunctional families.

In cannabis users the frequency of these characteristics was generally lower than in heroin addicts. Proportion of

correct classification of subjects in groups of different addiction status based on the EPQ scores was 23.3% for males

higher than by chance alone, and 30% for females.
